Are you easily shaken or anxious? Fearful of something going wrong? Sad and lonely? The Holy Spirit is the answer to all of these and more. The Holy Spirit is the love of the Father and Son as an active force. It is alive, real, and transcendent. Holy Spirit will help you face your troubles with the celebratory boldness of the Lord. This is victory; this is the peace that surpasses all understanding. Jesus declared that to us in his last days.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7
If you think that the Holy Spirit cannot possibly give you the kind of peace that allows you to be joyful in the midst of affliction, think again. The Holy Spirit impregnated Jesus’ earthly mother, settled upon Christ at his baptism and allowed him to do miracles, ministered to Christ when he suffered, and filled the Apostles with boldness to preach and convert thousands at a time. If the Holy Spirit can do all of that and more, there is no need to worry that God’s spirit won’t help you if you ask for it.
Peace that Surpasses
Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill your hearts. Never cease praying, and you will be heard. Drawing closer to God with the Holy Spirit’s help will help you when times take a downfall. Your strength will be renewed. You will look forward to day even if you know it is going to be difficult. Your small celebrations and victories will feel even more amazing, and you will find yourself interested in what others have to say. Your overall morale will improve. You will be a living example of love. It will radiate off of you. People are bound to say something eventually; once you have the peace of the Holy Spirit your whole life will change.
